"I live near 3 HD's, a Lowes, Rockler and Woodcraft. The HD's carry different stock of 1 1/2 x 3/4 and I have to hit each to see what they have. Between the big box stores Im able to get cherry, red oak, walnut and mahogany. "

Mag pickup help

Posted on December 1, 2019 at 7:26pm 7 Comments

I have a cb gitty delta 3 pole pickup harness wired to the jack. I tried to add a volume knob but im not getting any sound? Is it as simple as adding a knob to a piezo? Ive done that without a problem. Also how close to the strings does the pickup need to be? 

Thanks
